WWBPA’s Scholarship Winner

Monday, June 13 by silvia

Congratulations to Kim Meersma, a WWBPA student advisor since the end of 8th grade and the recipient of a $500 college scholarship from the WWBPA.

In her essay, she wrote:

“As I have learned through my five years of experience as a Student Advisor, the best way to convince people of the importance of building a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community is to have them experience a bicycle ride or a walk for themselves. Through events such as the Community Bike Ride, and the walk to the Farmers Market, cyclists and walkers of all ages and experience levels are able to see that given a safe route, they are able to reach places around the community without a car.”

Kim is graduating from WW-P High School South and is headed to UMass in Amherst, where we hope she will continue to promote biking and walking. We thank her for all she has done for the WWBPA and West Windsor.

Student Scholarships

Monday, June 14 by silvia

Congratulations to this year’s scholarship winners:
Emma Rosen Jason Chin
Emma Rosen of WW-P HS South and Jason Chin of WW-P HS North.

Both were student advisors to the WWBPA and participated in a  number of events (not always tied to the WWBPA) to raise awareness of bicyclists and pedestrians. Each will receive $500 toward their college expenses.

The WWBPA has an annual scholarship budget of $1,000. Applicants must be seniors in the WW-P schools or live in West Windsor. Winners should explain what they have done to make the community better for bicyclists and pedestrians or otherwise relate their experiences on bikes and on foot.
